Save Me Your Holier than Thou, We Paid Our Dues; so You Cannot Demand Our Obedience

 

First we would like to thank those American Jews and Christians who donated to Israeli funds and other interests. We appreciate your visiting and spending your tourist dollars here. We do appreciate the fact that your advice is well-intended and that you only mean for Israel to be the best that is possible. We understand that your desires are for Israel to be the moral example for the world and for us to act in such a manner that everybody will love us. We also understand when you complain that our actions reflect upon you and often appear to make your lives difficult. We understand that sometimes you cannot find any way of defending some of the actions Israel uses and the methods by which we seek to preserve Israel’s existence. We are aware of why you are so furious over Israel’s new travel ban on those who view Israel as an “apartheid” state; oppose the Israeli “settlement” of the Jewish homeland; and fight to isolate and de-legitimize Israel by boycotting Israeli academics, speakers, leaders, and products. We understand that you view this in the same light as Trump’s temporary immigration ban on merely seven Arab states where vetting those arriving from these places is next to impossible.

 

We understand that you feel you would be a hypocrite should you so oppose Trumps actions and simply allow with a wink and a nod Israel to act similarly. We even understand those who have threatened to stop contributing to Israeli funds unless we act properly. Well, allow us to reply, thanks, but no thanks. Keep your monies if that is your desire and please end your endless preaching and demanding that Israel act such that you are comfortable with our actions. Contrary to your opinion, Israel is not around for you to wear on your bracelet as if it were a charm which you can display to your friends and say see how nicely they act always forgiving every slight and never ever taking a hard line against those who would kill every Israeli if only they had the weapons with which to do so. See how they try so hard to diplomatically resolve their problems with those who are launching rockets at their children’s kindergarten and fire rockets timed with the start and end of the school day. Aren’t the Israelis just the most liberal and caring people always taking in whatever refugees appear on their border even when many of them only come to commit heinous acts of terror and act belligerently, especially to the Israeli women and the elderly.

 

This is not going to happen and you are going to have to just settle for the fact that Israel is a nation like every other nation in that sometimes it will need to act in ways which possibly the majority of the world, especially when it is Israel acting so, will go into an uproar denouncing Israel and those doing so might include you or those you know. Sometimes you are not going to be able to defend Israeli actions to your leftist friends who love to point out how Israel is just as bad as every other nation. We know that such is a lie and those making those claims would demand Israel commit suicide and still would complain we were not giving enough. That is just too bad because Israel does act and plan to remain a viable nation able to defend her borders. This requires that these borders are defendable in the first place. That means that we are not going to surrender everything the world would demand of us. We gave away Gaza and that resulted in a disaster yet the world immediately pocketed that generous act of faith and immediately demanded we surrender Judea and Samaria to the same people whose last gift resulted in Hamastan on our southern border and a menace for Egypt in the Sinai Peninsula. Were we to repeat that mistake and the same happen in Judea and Samaria these very same people from the United Nations, European Union and nations around the world would demand we give away the Negev next as proof we wish to get along with the rest of the world. Well, if suicide is what is required to get along with the rest of the world, guess we will not be getting along and you will have to live with these facts such that we can live period.

 

There appears to be a growing existence particularly in the United States believing that Israel must run every decision past a select group of important people who are far more knowledgeable when it comes to policies and what would best serve their desires which Israel should be required to commit to such that they will feel proud to be considered supporters. Should Israel disappoint them, then the Israeli government should be replaced and these same self-serving people should be the final arbiters as to who should run the nation. Those with whom they disagree should be relegated into the minority and only those who are amongst the approved group of left leaning, two-state supporting, anti-settlement, secular, anti-orthodox politicians who would feel comfortable and are acceptable to the leftist wing of the Democrat Party should be permitted to run Israel. Well, that is not about to happen. Israel is rapidly becoming more religious and more Zionist than any of the average Democrat Party leadership could ever be if their recent convention and choices for leadership are any indication of their leanings. Any political groups which find leadership such as Democrat Party National Committee Chair Tom Perez and Deputy Chair Keith Ellison, both of whom have a record of anti-Israel activity and advocacy, are not possible allies of Israel and should not have any influence over Israeli political or military decisions. Those who would support allowing a Women’s March to be coordinated by pro-Palestinian, anti-Israeli Linda Sarsour and convicted Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh are not capable of also claiming to be supportive of Israel. Support of Rasmea Odeh and believing her story that she was innocent of the terror attack bombing of a supermarket which murdered two young Israelis, twenty-one year old Leon Kanner and twenty-two year old Eddie Joffe, and injured nine others because her confession was given while in the custody of the Israeli authorities disqualifies them as being a supporter of Israel. Those who believe her claims of innocence and that she was sexually tortured as was her father for forty-five days before she confessed to her part in the terror attack has beliefs about Israelis which belie their claims of support for Israel. Yet these are often the people who scream the loudest accusing Israel of improper activities and then plead that Israel should be required to seek their approval before taking any actions political, military or other security actions. They are also the most shocked and astounded that Israel would take precautions without conferring first with their betters in the United States, particularly their betters in the leftist organizations such as Jews for Peace, Rabbis for Peace, B’Tselem, J Street and numerous other leftist, post-Zionist radical groups.

 

Much to the horror of these leftist detractors of Israel, the majority of the Israeli population does not agree with their demands that Israel sacrifice even further because peace is just one more sacrifice away, just as they claimed before Israel made the last sacrifice which they claimed that this time it would be the last sacrifice, not like the sacrifice before that which was also to be the last sacrifice as was the one before and the one before and that has been the story for the past twenty-plus years of Israeli final sacrifices for peace. After the Gaza debacle, the Israeli public completely has decided that they see real willingness and a different attitude from those with whom Israel is presumably supposed to be making peace. Mahmoud Abbas has refused to even meet with the Israelis; yet the world demands that Israel continue making sacrifices though the last two sacrifices, if not more, have not been returned and instead have been rebuked and met with claims that whatever sacrifice Israel made was insufficient and until and unless Israel is ready to fall on their sword, then nothing less than suicidal retreats will suffice. Those who claim that such sacrifices are not out of the reasonable sphere are not friends of Israel and are simply seeking to make points as being the greater leftist making the greater demands for Israeli sacrifice than the next leftist. Israel cannot meet the demands from every corner as doing so would be the end of the Jewish State. Israel is not going to commit to being suicidal and will act in the way best suited for continued health and existence of the Jewish State and will refuse those ridiculous demands of the United Nations, European Union, and others whose demands are of a similar nature.

 

Now to get down to the reality and truth of the matter which may be painful for some but, for the most honest, these revelations will come as no surprise as they have known that their views have drifted further and further left and with that drift so have their demands of Israel in the face of the Islamic escalating animosity and belligerence towards the Western World in general and Israel in particular, even more so than the United States. Israel sacrificed in making the Oslo Accords after Yasser Arafat duped the world into believing he had reformed from his terrorist days which included the attempted overthrow of the government in Jordan, the eventual weakening and Islamification of Lebanon and the start of the Lebanon Civil War and formation of Hezballah through his actions. Even after the Second Intifada about which came proof that it had been planned even before Arafat went to hold talks with Israel with President Clinton at Camp David and then in Paris where he already planned the violence such that he could blame it on Israel for not surrendering completely at the negotiations. What Arafat had not planned on was that after he gave President Clinton his word that he would accept a set of terms he deemed beyond Israeli comfort levels that Prime Minister Ehud Barak would agree to his demands for close to ninety-five percent of the West Bank, land swaps, and half of Jerusalem in order to make peace. The next morning when President Clinton planned on finalizing the deal and collecting signatures, Yasser Arafat stormed from the meeting with Secretary of State Madeline Albright chasing him down the hall to no avail.

Israel has made concession and sacrifice one after another with nothing to show for it other than the world expecting more from Israel to the point of demanding Israel make sacrifices simply for the sake of having Israel sacrifice with nothing offered in return. This led to the Gaza giveaway where all of Gaza was surrendered by Israel, over eight-thousand Jewish lives turned upside-down being ripped from their homes, their livelihoods often destroyed, their greenhouses turned over to the Arabs who tore them apart to make rockets and launchers, and then soon thereafter the Palestinian Authority surrendered the Gaza Strip over to Hamas, Islamic Jihad and giving a beachhead potentially to Iran on the Israeli southern border. Since signing onto the Oslo Accords where Israel was promised to retain Area C and all of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Authority was granted semi-autonomy over Area A which would lead to their being given Area A as the central lands for their state while Area B would be mutually governed and deliberations would decide where the eventual border would stand to the current situation where the world is demanding that the Arabs be given all of Judea and Samaria, half of Jerusalem and that Israel accept many hundreds of thousand Arab refugees and there are those who demand Israel accept millions of Arab refugees and that all of Jerusalem resulting in not just a single new Arab state but two new Arab states and the death of Israel and likely the extermination of another six-million Jews as the world would again refuse to permit them to emigrate to their shores and to relative safety. This is why Israel can no longer simply bow to every demand and whim which passes for the newest idea which will bring peace and instead decide what will allow Israel to keep peace through sufficient strength and control of strategically significant positions. These vital points include potentially all of Judea and Samaria as the Palestinian Arab population becomes virulently anti-Semitic and more militarized to the point they are becoming a threat to Israel’s continued existence.

 

This is the reality and as things worsen it will become even more of a necessity that Israel reestablish complete control over all of Judea and Samaria; and if that should also require the removal of the Arabs which are known to be militantly anti-Israel and anti-Semitic, then that is what will have to be. The current government would never likely permit such an eventuality, but that does not mean that such would not become necessary and that a future government would remain so intimidated by the world’s leftist largely in Europe and the United States. The threat that Israel will be hated if it does not comply with the next round of demands no longer frightens the Israeli population as they have learned that being hated is not necessarily the worst of all things, ceasing to have a defendable border and a safe place in which to live is far worse and if being hated becomes the price for survival, we will take survival, thank you so very much. We understand and have learned how easy it is for others, even Jews who claim to be our fiercest supporters, to demand that Israel surrender to her enemies and how doing so can make these people feel so superior and good about themselves and how it allows them to claim they are such great supporters of a peaceful solution to the Palestinian situation and how they are the most compassionate. We also are learning how to simply say, “No!” And when “No!” does not suffice, then how about we say, well, let us say we say, “No!” even louder and possibly with a few superlatives added to the mix. And when that fails, as our saying “No” always has, then we will just have to let our actions be our statement, and that we are sure will suffice when that hard day arrives. The problem is the more the world demands the indefensible of Israel the more they make peace impossible because the Arab world stands assured that the rest of the world will hand them the Jews and not even blink when they slaughter the Jews by the millions. They observed the world’s lack of concern during World War II and learned that the world does not care if there are those who wish to murder Jews. They also learned that the world does not much care who is being murdered as long as the murdered are a minority who is not one of them and that includes Yazidi, Kurds, Roma and close to any other group which is too small to defend themselves or cause the rest of the world to care.

 

Even nations do not always get a response when they are gobbled up; just ask Czechoslovakia, currently Slovakia and the Czech Republic which probably means there are two nations which can be swallowed without the world getting even the slightest indigestion as they have not learned from history. One last warning should go out to all the Balkan nations, the smaller nations at the eastern end of Europe closest to the Russian border and the countries of Southeast Asia near China (which is all except India); the world will not care when larger entities swallow you whole or even wholesale because their only concern is are they still feeling safe. It is only when the major nations, which the world has fewer of these every year as now nations such as Spain, Romania, Syria, Yemen and by now even Kuwait are no longer worth going to war over. Should Iran be the nation taking one or more of these nations, not to include Saudi Arabia, and already have tested large nuclear weapons proven to be deliverable by their displayed ICBM capability, then many might complain and call on the United Nations, but none would do much if anything. Thus, any idea that one could expect others to come to the aid of Israel is ludicrous and thus Israel would be left hanging to fend for herself? The world is not getting safer by the hour but far more volatile and dangerous, so please do not fault us for noticing and acting accordingly. You want to hate us, and we would rather you have us to hate than you to have once loved us and now hate our having passed and fallen.

There are often claims made in editorials and historic allegories when attempting to explain the appearance of a similarity between the animosity and murderous intents against the Jewish People by many in Islam by comparing these effects to those from Nazism and their execution of the Final Solution and the concentration death camps. The ongoing supposition appears to lay the origins of the Islamic animosity towards the Jews as having its origins in Nazi Germany despite the verses in the Quran which dictate genocidal animosity against the Jewish People. Such a supposition crediting the Nazi hatred and attempted annihilation of all Jews within their borders ignore some of the earliest writings in Islam which demand treatment of the Jews which can only be described as genocidal. A pair of such writings can be found in the writings of Bukhari who wrote the Hadiths during the mid to late ninth century which included the verses which are of interest in Hadiths Volume 4 (52:176-7) which read as follows:

Bukhari 52:176
Allah’s Apostle said, “You (i.e. Muslims) will fight with the Jews till some of them will hide behind stones. The stones will (betray them) saying, ‘O ‘Abdullah (i.e. slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.’”

Bukhari 52:177
Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”

These relatively well-known verses dictate an obvious animosity against the Jewish People and are not the only references from earliest Islam which impart a genocidal series of references regarding the Jewish People. These particular Hadiths are accepted completely by Hamas as they have incorporated a version of them within their charter as the concluding paragraph of Article Seven which reads:

The Day of Judgment will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews, when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (the Boxthorn tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.

The above quotes depict the early and the consistent overriding and driving impetus for hatred of the Jewish People as well as how these exact phraseologies were retained and carried virtually word for word to the present as they appear in the Hamas Charter echoing the Hadiths from the ninth century.

 

The fact is that Islam held a particularly viscous hatred against the Jewish populations around Medina which resulted in Muhammad making war against the two main tribal elements of Jews living around the areas of Medina. In the year 628 Muhammad attacked the Banu Qaynuqa tribe of Jews defeating them and sent them into exile northward out of the Arabian Peninsula. They were rumored to have eventually settled in the lands of Syria. The Banu Nadir battled with Muhammad’s forces and lost their claim to the oasis later in 628 forcing them to resettle with the neighboring tribe of Jews, the Banu Qurayza. The Banu Nadir and the Banu Qurayza were allied before becoming involved in the battle of Khaybar resulting in their final defeat in 629 leaving none of the males of fighting age and all the older Jews while taking the younger women and children who were young enough to be raised as Muslims without the threat of their revolting. The Islamic animosities towards the Jewish tribes surrounding Medina are evidence that such hatred was evident in early Islam.

 

Moving forward to the years leading to and including World War II we can trace some of the events and influences which shine some revealing light on the Nazi-Islam influences. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini fled from Jerusalem and the lands under the British Mandate journeying to Berlin in 1941. During the war, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem al-Husseini repeatedly made requests to “the German government to bomb Tel Aviv.” Grand Mufti of Jerusalem al-Husseini was involved in the organization and recruitment of Bosnian Muslims into several divisions of the Waffen SS and other units and also blessed sabotage teams trained by Germans before they were dispatched to Palestine, Iraq, and Transjordan to fight the British which the Grand Mufti held a hatred almost equal to his despising of the Jewish People. The most well remembered unit formed and virtually commanded by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem al-Husseini was the 13th Waffen Mountain Division of the SS Handschar, formed mostly of Muslims in 1943 and was the first non-Germanic Waffen SS division. The Grand Mufti was known to have had meetings with Fuhrer Adolf Hitler, Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler (also held Waffen-SS, Nazi Minister of the Interior and Commander over the Gestapo), Foreign Minister Joachim Von Ribbentrop and other Nazi leaders. Most of the Grand Mufti’s efforts were expended towards persuading them to extend the Nazis’ anti-Jewish program to the Arab world.

 

The Grand Mufti pressed the Nazi leadership to declare their objections to the formation of a Jewish state within the British Mandate lands and that they would negate all treaties which were being used to bring such into reality as well as to form an alliance with the Arab populations throughout the Middle East offering that they would gladly rise up and fight the British and French occupiers. There is one fact which damns the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini more than any other action he took and stands above all else he may have attempted in his lifetime, that he was instrumental in the proceedings at the Wannsee Conference in January 1942. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem had met previously with Adolf Eichmann and Heinrich Himmler to discuss the Jewish problem stating that it was most unacceptable for the Jews to be exiled to the areas under the British Mandate and they could not be simply put in camps and quarantined just to have them eventually make their way after the war to the Middle East. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini pressed for the extermination of the European Jews and demanded that the Nazis dedicate themselves and declare their intent to also exterminate the Jews across the Middle East after they defeated the Allies and took possession of the lands of the Middle East and beyond. This went hand in hand with his discussions with the Fuhrer Adolf Hitler about the Islamic concept of Jihad, of an all-out holy war which was all encompassing and how such was the dream of all Muslims which the Reich could use to their advantage by forming Muslim divisions and utilizing them to hunt down and exterminate undesirable groups such as Jews, Roma, homosexuals and other enemies of the Reich. There are those who claim that it was the persuasive arguments made by the Grand Mufti which pressed the Nazi decision to exterminate the Jews of Europe. Further evidence shows that the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem toured Auschwitz concentration camp with Eichmann as well as later testimony at the Nuremburg Trials where top Adolph Eichmann aide SS-Hauptsturmführer Dieter Wisliceny stated under oath during questioning that the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem al-Husseini constantly urged greater haste in the Nazi’s rate of the killing of the Jews.

 

The Muslims did not take a page from the Nazis genocidal mania against the Jewish People and the slaughter of six-million or more Jews along with the totals of approaching fourteen-million undesirables which also included homosexuals, Roma (Gypsies), Christian ministers, Catholic Priests, Polish citizens and prisoners of war, Russian prisoners of war, Serbs and various others who were denoted as inferior or a threat to the purity of the master race. Another item of interest is it was during World War II and as a result of the claims by the German Nazis that they were members of a master race that the leadership of Persia changed their names to Iran, the Farsi pronunciation for Aryan, the so-called master race. This was likely the greatest influence the Nazis held over the Islamic peoples, both the peoples and their leaders. Such an effect pales when compared to the influence which Islam played in the Nazi actions during World War II as it was the input and persuasion coming from the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini with Adolph Hitler, Adolf Eichmann, Heinrich Himmler and speaking before the high ranking decision makers attending the Wannsee Conference both during meetings and potentially even more-so in private speaking between sessions and at the end or beginning of every day. There have been claims which have credited the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini with almost singlehandedly bending the direction of the Wannsee Conference into taking the genocidal elimination of the Jews of Europe. That summation alone quantifies the direction and degree of influence from the history of Jew hatred in Islam flowing into the Nazi camp and debunking the mainstream media myth that Islam has been corrupted by the Nazis and their implementation of the Final Solution. The mainstream media’s choice to whitewash the entirety of the history of Islam and the facts which prove beyond any doubt that the Holocaust and everything right down to the yellow Star of David Jews were required to wear having originated with the second Caliph of Iraq, Umar bin al-Khat’tab, who demanded not only that Jews wear the yellow star but the Jews were required to walk down the street on the opposite side of the Muslims. When all is taken into account and we have said all there is to say, it becomes obvious and beyond doubt that the Muslims have not learned very much about hatred of the Jews from the Nazis but rather the Nazis were schooled by Islam and took virtually everything they used against the Jews in the Holocaust and simply modernized the methods and introduced to the world industrialized slaughter of human beings simply because they were different, be it they were Jews, Roma, homosexuals, mentally challenged, physically handicapped, political prisoners, the wrong nationality or anything which caused one to catch a hateful glance from one of the politically correct in the society. The similarity between the Nazi persecuted classes and the historically persecuted under Islam have a frightening similarity, the Nazis were simply the first to use the assembly line as a means of murdering millions efficiently and speedily. Perhaps this was the one lesson the Islamic radicals may prove to have learned, and if they have, then G0d help us all.
